    I would like to get some of the other gamers thoughts on the subject.

    I think a game like Manhunt it’s not realistic to say that these don’t create ‘some’ kind of issues in children, but I wouldn’t even leave this to simply bad parenting. Honestly, I’m a little sick of parents being the scapegoats here as well. There are a lot of contributors, and yes, parents are the main source, but parents can not stop schizophrenia, nor sociopathic or psychopathic behaviors. The first is entirely chemical, and the second and third can be genetic. To immediatly put these behaviors on video games or parents is wrong. Find out what the root issue is and then go from there, stop diagnosing this in the media… thank you.
